Overgrown rubber bands

Ways to add an overgrown rubber band to your workout from Ladell Hill, a certified personal trainer in Atlanta:


Put the end of the band under your left foot. Lean at your waist with left leg forward and right leg back. Rest your right arm on your left knee for support. Grab the end of the band with your left hand (palm should be facing behind you and arm bent by your side). Pull back until your elbow is about 4 or 5 inches above your back, making sure to keep your wrist straight. Do two to three sets of 12 to 15 repetitions. Switch arm positions and repeat.
